Term 6 - Water

 

This term our topic is water and we kicked started this with our spectacular starter of creating water colour paintings for a whole school display.  We used our love of nature and outdoors as a starting point and created water bomb paintings and wax resistant paintings with trees and leaves.  Come and have a look at our finished work!

Term 5 - Planet Earth

 

This term our topic is Planet Earth. The topic began with a spectacular starter which involved the whole school watching an episode Blue Planet together and eating popcorn!

 

In class we are very busy being Wildlife Detectives and learning all about meerkats, ready to write our own non-chronological reports. We have learnt some fascinating facts already.

Our topic for term 4 has been 'My Family and other Animals'.  We turned out topic area into a safari jeep and used this as inspiration for our writing where we used the book 'Meerkat Mail' writing postcards and retelling the story.  We have been learning all about animals in science and once again ventured outside for our exploration when we visited the farm and invited some exotic animals in for a visit.  We finished the term by putting our measuring skills that we had learnt in maths to good use when we had to try and work out who had stolen our Easter treats!! Luckily the thief had left a foot and handprint so we were able to narrow down our list of suspects!
